Brandon was sitting straight up when I walked in this morning. He had all his bandages undone. He looked at me and smiled and said, "Good morning Pops, What's for breakfast?" I went down to the chow hall and grabbed are morning breakfast.
The Doctors are wanting him to be moved out of ICU. They are encouraging him to go up to the floor with the other guys. There he will start the basics. He'll learn how to get in and out of bed, bathroom use and so on. He is willing and looking forward to moving towards his recovery.
All the staff is amazed at his will. So many times they have to really push people along. With Brandon they are having to keep a close eye on him. The bed has become a jungle gym for him.
Yesterday a couple of soldiers with like injuries came and visited Brandon. It was amazing to see Brandon sit up and respond to their presence. We stepped out of the room and let him talk with his fellow soldiers. All of them were just filled with joy for each other. Soldiers in arms never forgotten.
In Christ Doug & Brandon
